Sharjah: AB de Villiers stormed to an unbeaten century to help South Africa beat Pakistan convincingly by 117 runs in the fifth and final one-dayer in Sharjah, winning the five-match series 4-1. De Villiers scored 115 from 102 balls with ten boundaries and three sixes -- his 15th one-day hundred -- to lift South Africa to an imperious 268-7 before bowling Pakistan out for 151 in 35.3 overs. Sohaib Maqsood top-scored with a solid 53 but otherwise Pakistan failed to capitalise on a weakened South African bowling attack, with spearheads Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, and spinner Imran Tahir rested for the meaningless match as the series had already been decided.
